A big shout out to The Stroppery

Brilliant. There's a new feminist group blog in town, The Stroppery. They have a fantastic line-up of writers, the prickly and sweary Queen of Thorns, the tattooed lady Boganette, spitty and spatty Octavia, brilliant young feminist Coley Tangerina, and out-there Emma Hart, plus one or two more to come. Their introductory post is up, in which they promise feminism and swearing, in no particular order. They say:
So. Who are we? Well, we’re a bunch of women. All of us have, at some point, been called stroppy. We’re, for want of a better term, liberal feminists. If you’ve been around the blogosphere for a while, you’ll know some of us. Some of us will be new to you.

We like to swear, and no, we don’t take shit. We talk about politics and sex, fashion and abortion, violence and The Patriarchy. Sometimes, we like to talk about them REALLY LOUDLY.

The Stroppery: Tea, crumpets, and fucking the patriarchy

That's not very original Anon. Try harder.

Yawn. Yet more militent feminazis. Tbier page sure does scream out, but it's a bit desperate.

Trolls who can't spell or type are even less original. Gonna leave it up to shame you, next time get a handle.

"Militent" = a thousand tents no?

Deborah said...

Oh good grief.

I'm always puzzled by the 'militant' epithet. Makes me wonder how the person defines 'feminists' c/f 'militant feminists'. What's the bet that 'militent' feminists are strident?

Hugh said...

Personally I've always taken "militant" as a complement.
